an instrumental role in a cease-fire, gives the obama administration, the state department, a much stronger hand in the middle east in general and i think it gives president obama a stronger hand both in the middle east and at home, because he's able to play this role with someone, that he has not had the best relationship with. >> kristin soltis, do you agree with that? >> to an extent. i think it will be good for obama if the cease-fire can be maintained, particularly, it will be good for secretary clinton. whenever you get to be the one giving the press conference, that's a good visual moment. what i think is really interesting, is to watch how the arab spring has affected this and how egypt's sort of new leadership, there were these real questions as to what extent will the new president of egypt, part of the muslim brotherhood, be a force for good and stability in the region. the fact that you have egypt and secretary of state clinton trying to broker a deal. this isn't a partisan issue, a lot of people will look favorably if the american government can play a positive role in bringing abou

's role is so important. after four years of basically neglecting the peace process, the obama administration now has in some ways an opportunity to move in and create not just a sense of calm or temporary cease-fire but actually to take the first steps in dealing with israel's security as well as the issue of the blockade of gaza. if she can move through phase one in the cease-fire, phase two, then deal with those immediate concerns, that then opens the way for what everyone is expected since ironically her husband got close to a peace agreement 12 years ago in camp david. everyone knows what the ultimate formula is going to be. this is a moment where the situation begs for a bigger solution than just another temporary cease-fire that opens the way as alan dershowitz says for something four years down the road. >> let's hold that thought. let's have a quick break, come back and talk about the big picture solution. hi, could you read my list? it's all crossed out... it's 'cause i got everything on it. boom! thank you!
